History[edit]

The company was founded by John Bloor in 1969.[2] In 2002, housing sales reached 1,870 making Bloor Homes then the largest housebuilder to be owned by one person.[3] As of 2016, Bloor Homes is now one of the largest privately owned housebuilding groups in the UK. The combined group is worth around £725 million.[4]

Operations[edit]

As of 2012, Bloor Homes builds circa 1,800 homes a year.[5] In 2015, this increased at a rate of 2,000 a year thanks to the upturn in the UK economy.[6]
